Default Hawaii from California in February

We are considering on sailing to Hawaii from California on the Golden in February. We did the Mexican Riviera a couple of years back on the Mercury and found the sea days windy. What can we typically expect on the four sea days at the beginning and end of a Hawaiian trip? Windy? Cool? We spend our days pool side so we don't want a cruise that effectively keeps us inside for six or more days.

We did this cruise for our 35th on the Diamond this past February 19th for 15 days and it was cool but did warm up and of course was cool a day or 2 before we hit California. The pool area was always packed with sunbathers. Enjoy!

We just returned from San Diego to Hawaii and back on the Radiance. We had a wonderful cruise and met many nice people. The first few days out were not that warm and we hit a few days of high seas and strong winds coming back. We enjoyed the islands very much, but learned something about ourselves, we enjoy visiting ports and loads of sea days together are not that great. Please understand many people live for sea days and the more the better. We found four over and five coming back a little to much. We spent more time in the casino than any other cruise. We visited Maui many years ago and still found it to be our favorite island. Good luck, Mike

i've done sandiego rt to hawaii twice, but on HAL ships which have a magradome over the lido pool area. when it is too chilly to enjoy the aft outdoor pool, i just go to the lido. the dome cover is glass, so warming rays do come in. just like swimming in a shopping mall -- very nice indeed.
